How can I test the compressor relay and thermister? DO I have to by the complete compressor assy? I have replaced the main circit board and defrost senser. The frig. temp. is at 40 and the freezer is at 33-35
The start relay would not be a problem if the freezer temp is getting down to 33-35 degrees. You will want to check the frost pattern on the coils and make sure that they are not impacted with frost and have a full even frost pattern. If the coils are impacted with ice then there is a defrost failure and you will need to do a resistance check on the defrost sensor and the controller. If the coils are only partially frosted then you have a sealed system failure. More than likely a leak in which you will have to determine where the leak is located.
How can one determine the horsepower of an LG compressor? Is it coded somehow on the label attached to the unit? I'm unable to decipher the one on mine. Thanks!
Answer Hello Christopher,
I'm sorry but we do not have this information available to us. I searched for the information but was unable to locate it for you. If we had the model number for the unit you are looking to put it in, we could possibly locate a satisfactory replacement part.
Does this compressor assembly come with the start relay and the overload?
